Ngā Kaitiaki o

Te Maungārongo Kia Orana koutou, 2014 is nearly over, where has the year gone whānau? I am pleased to advise that our roads were safer in 2014 than they have been for several years previous. There have been less serious and fatal crashes and big reductions in overall speed which is a real positive for us. The reduction in alcohol breath and blood limits for drivers that recently passed will challenge some and require a number of us to plan well ahead if we go out drinking. This mindset shift is a good thing in my opinion, in changing the culture that exists amongst some of us. Family Violence increases throughout our communities over the next couple of months. There are a number of key drivers that contribute - including alcohol, drugs and financial pressure. My staff will be amongst our communities and alongside our whānau, attending incidents, follow up visits with victims, if couples have been separated and police safety orders issued, we will conduct follow up visits with both parties. If your whānau is struggling, get alongside and support them as prevention is the key. Police will be working alongside Te Rūnanga o Tūranganui ā Kiwa and Ngāti Porou Iwi at community hui throughout Tairāwhiti in early 2015. We are coming to a place near you to discuss family violence and specific community solutions supported by police and other agencies. Our second group of Ngā Ara Pai restricted driver licence students graduated today. We celebrated their nine week commitment to the program which finished with lunch and the presentation of certificates by our Mayor Meng Foon. Thanks to Passrite and mentors as, without them, the delivery of this programme would not be possible. Three courses are booked for next year, commencing in February 2015. Rhythm and Vines will be upon us in no time and our roads, city and shops will be very busy. Up to 20,000 extra people will visit making for both opportunities and challenges. My priority is to ensure that the event is a success and everyone including our locals have a safe and enjoyable time. I am proud of Tairāwhiti and everything it offers. Christmas is a time for whānau to come together and enjoy each other's company and plenty of aroha. Just being with each other is the recipe for a safe holiday together. Merry Christmas everyone, look forward to catching up in 2015. Kia Manuia Inspector Sam Aberahama Area Commander:Tairāwhiti

Meka Whaitiri

This year Christmas has come upon us at great speed with a new leader and responsibilities here at the Labour Party and an ongoing reshaping of our future outlook. One of the most enjoyable and rewarding parts of my role is getting out to Ikaroa-Rāwhiti and our people again. This year, in particular these last few months, have been fullon. As the school year finishes, our children have also had their efforts acknowledged and achievements celebrated by their schools at prizegivings and other such celebratory occasions. My whānau and I were there to celebrate with my sons at their school prizegivings. It is important that we have lofty goals for our children and we provide them all of the support to achieve them. Congratulations to you all and your whānau. It is important to acknowledge that all of our tamariki and rangatahi have amazing potential. We need to celebrate all of their successes, big and small, not only those recognized on a stage or with a certificate or trophy. Kei te mihi ki ngā whānau katoa e hapai nei i a tātou rangatira o apopo.

Those whānau trying their best for their children and young people, I acknowledge you all for your tireless and often unrewarded mahi.

There appear to be more hard times on the way. Among others, health funding cuts have been indicated and housing continues to be an on-going struggle with our state houses being demolished or sold off. Some whānau, groups and communities will be feeling these very keenly, many of these are ours. If I can do anything this season, it would be to ask you all to keep a look out for anyone who may be alone or struggling through this time.

Nga mihi manaakitanga mo te Kirihimete me te tau hou.

For the next few weeks, it will be a break time for me. For those required to work or are on standby, I hope you get some time off and a chance to recuperate and enjoy the Christmas summer season. Our wider whānau are spending Christmas together and enjoying each other’s company. Kia tupato i te unu waipiro, be careful when drinking and let’s have a safe Christmas New Year period.

Our offices will be closed from Monday 22 December, and will reopen on Monday 12 January Regional offices Tairawhiti Office, Gisborne P +64 6 863 2184 Te Awakairangi Office, Lower Hutt P +64 4 564 1370 Te Matau-a-Maui Office, Hastings P + 64 6 873 3457

Thank you for your on-going support of me, as the Member of Parliament for IkaroaRāwhiti and for the words and gestures of aroha, tautoko and manaaki that many of you have given to me. I wish you all a happy and safe Christmas and for the year ahead. Authorised by Meka Whaitiri, Parliament Buildings, Wellington

Meri Kirihimete me ngā mihi mo te tau hou.

Tairāwhiti Community Law Centre Merry Christmas everyone, I can’t believe this is the fifth Christmas article I have written for Pīpīwharauroa and the 60th article I have written in the past five years. It only seems like yesterday I wrote the first article and I have written about everything from consumer law, family law, Māori land law, criminal law, human rights, financial law, youth law, employment and tenancy law, environmental law and the list goes on. So as we head to another Christmas and towards the New Year we should all be aware of the new DRINK DRIVING law changes that came into affect from the 1 December 2014.

Page 3

Changes to drink-driving limits from 1 December What are the new drink-driving limits? From 1 December 2014 the alcohol limit for drivers aged 20 years and over lowers from 400mcg of alcohol per litre of breath to 250mcg. The blood alcohol limit lowers from 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood (0.08), to 50mg (0.05.) For drivers under 20, the limit stays at zero. The law says you must not drive if the amount of alcohol in your breath or blood exceeds these limits. What happens to me if I’m caught over the new limits? If a breath screening test shows you have more than 250mcg of alcohol per litre of breath, you will be asked to take an evidential breath test (EBT), usually in a booze bus or at a police station.

If this confirms you are over 250mcg, you will likely be forbidden to drive for up to 12 hours. You will need to arrange a lift or have someone come and drive your car. What are the penalties for drivers aged 20 years and over? These penalties listed below apply to drivers aged 20 and over. For drivers under 20 or those with an alcohol interlock licence or a zero alcohol licence, the limit stays at zero and the penalties remain unchanged. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Nā Nikorima Thatcher

If you are over age 20 years old and …

What happens:

Notes:

Fail an evidential breath test 251-400mcg of alcohol per litre of breath

Mere Pōhatu

Family Businesses Rock! My grocer Les Barbara has been my grocer for 16 years. He knows what I go to his shop for. When he’s in the mood he gives me a few lessons in Economics 101 about what his customer base is up to. He’s got a lot of information about our neighbourhood. He knows who we are related to. He even knows Bella the dog. He’s into selling his groceries to the second generation of our families now. He’s almost the last local trader who knows us all in a corner dairy sense. He sells us fresh goods. Not stuff that’s near or past its expiry date. He doesn’t overstock. He doesn’t have stuff sitting on the shelves that we won’t buy. He doesn’t try too many new things. You won’t find flash coffee or that latest chocolate milk in his outfit. The credit card bit on his eftpos machine is blotted out; and he’s very tight with credit. Every now and then if you are say 10 cents short he’ll exert himself and say it’s okay. You can see that he is grimacing. He doesn’t get too excited about much. He’s in that shop observing us all and noting our trends. He reckons one thing we are doing more of is smoking. He’s selling

BREASTSCREEN AOTEAROA IS A FREE BREAST SCREENING PROGRAMME FOR WELL WOMEN

more. He told me that before the huge academic research came out that said the most smokers come from our poorest neighbourhoods.

When I need to check stuff out, I make my way to our local family businesses. There’s not that many of them left. They know heaps. They should be our go-to references if we want to stimulate our local economies. The things they know.

To confirm all this I’m looking up a McKinsey article about family businesses. McKinsey & Company is a global management consulting firm that serves leading businesses, governments, non-governmental organisations, and not for profits. They help their clients make lasting improvements to their performance and realize their most important goals. They speak 127 languages. Their consultants come from a remarkable range of backgrounds. They have 100 world-wide offices. They operate as a global partnership with a single unifying vision. “The starting point for many family-controlled local companies is a demonstrable, even dominant, “home field” advantage; they have a deep understanding of their countries and industries, as well as considerable influence on regulators. They derive all this from years of personal relationships with stakeholders across the value chain. Many have proved resilient through times of economic crisis.” So here is the thing folks – spend your money this Christmas with the local family businesses who know us.

LAUNCH OF KIA ORA E TE IWI IN TAIRĀWHITI

Standing left to right: Moetahi Ruru – Te Whare Hauora o Te Aitanga ā Hauiti, Effie Parker - RN, Nancy Aupouri - RN, Diane McMillan - RN Sitting: Helen Macdonald - RN, Sheryl Norris – Reception - Puhi Kaiti.

The Breast Screening Health Promotion Team from Te Whare Hauora o Te Aitanga ā Hauiti and Puhi Kaiti Community Health Centre - Kaiti Mall, are available every day to talk about breast screening and enrolment. Whānau health and wellbeing is a priority for the team so do call in to see them. If you fit the criteria shown below, we will help you to enrol on the free national breast screening program that checks women for early breast cancer. Having a mammogram every two years improves a woman’s chances of surviving breast cancer. Early detection is the best protection. What are the benefits of regular screening? Screening does not stop you from getting breast cancer but it does reduce your chance of dying from it. Who can have a free screening mammogram? You can have a free screening mammogram every two years if you meet all of the following:

Members of the first Kia Ora Te Iwi programme at Takipū Marae

In October 2014 the East Coast Cancer Society together with a number of Tairāwhiti Māori Health Providers (MHP) ran their first Kia Ora E Te Iwi programme at Te Poho o Pikihoro - Takipū Marae at Te Karaka, Gisborne. The ethos behind this was to help establish relationships between Māori communities and the Cancer Society. This training was completed on 19 and 20 June 2014. It has been a huge achievement in terms of developing positive working relationships with Cancer Society, Māori Health Providers. This was a first KOETI programme that Te Tairāwhiti MHP Kaimahi had organized, alongside East Coast Cancer Society, to support those high risk communities and whānau experiencing cancer. The participation of services such as Hospice, Palliative Care, Advanced Care Planning, TDH oncology nurses and social workers and Māori health Provider Kaimahi, are critical to the success of these programmes. It is more than providers explaining what their services provide, but the ability of being able to establish those vital links and positive working relationships that are often fragmented between secondary care and primary care. Participants were able to ask questions and freely discuss their concerns, feelings and needs. The day had a good turnout with approximately 50+ in attendance. The mix of attendees absolutely contributed to the success of the day. Māori men

diagnosed with cancer explained their challenges and experiences whilst going through their cancer journey. Tikanga and Te Ao Māori is certainly a Poutokomanawa (central column) which can be interpreted as the heart, to support them through that diagnosis. It was amazing to hear our Māori men and women standing in front of iwi, sharing experiences of their journey. This truly is an example of what the KOETI programme is able to provide. There were many stories of whānau supporting whānau with cancer or chronic disease but literally having had very little, or no knowledge of services available and in some instances with an unintended detrimental effect on that whānau member. Primary prevention and programmes like KOETI have the potential to offer the most effective form of educating and building awareness of cancer control within our communities. Primary prevention is to reduce exposure to potential lifestyle factors, and help prevent or at least reduce the risk of cancer. Services working together collaboratively and with dedicated resource for the KOETI programme have the ability to contribute significantly to Māori Cancer Control. For further information about Kia Ora E Te Iwi contact: Moetahi Ruru, Te Whare Hauora O Te Aitanga a Hauiti,

and Richard Foon were great landlords to them. Three of their workers have stayed on at the shop. One of them being Tracy McDonald who is the longest staff member to date, starting when she was only 14.

Ko Thomas Barnett tōku pāpā Nō Ngāti Raukawa Ko Mariana Rota tōku māmā Nō Ngāti Whakāue Ko Mary Edwardson tōku kuia Nō Whakatōhea Ko Connie Beets ahau Ki te taha ki tōku hoa rangatira Ko Bill Bougen tōna koroua Nō Manutuke Ko Rene Bougen tōna māmā Ko Albert Beets tōna pāpā Nō Motū Ko Ken Beets tōku hoa rangatira Connie was born in Rotorua Hospital October 1948, her parents were Thomas and Mariana Barnett nee Rota. She travelled every day by bus to attend Waiohau School before she and her family moved to Kiorenui Village, just out of Murupara town. There she attended Murupara School, then Rangitahi College until leaving school. At 17 she moved to Rotorua where she started work at the telephone exchange before moving to Auckland in 1968 where she worked at a shoe company for about seven years and had her first child. In 1976 she met Ken Beets who was working for the Rescue Fire Service at Hamilton Airport. He was good mates with her Uncle Ken. They married on the 15 July 1977 and later that year had their daughter Irene. Soon after they moved to Gisborne and in less than a year their son Daniel arrived. Moses Tahere aged 10

The Kaiti Mall has changed a lot over the years, there was a huge field on the other side of the Fish n chip shop, and then slowly buildings started popping up all around. An alleyway between the TAB and the Fish n chip shop was for the people living behind the mall, but as time went by the it was considered unsafe and removed. However, Ken and Connie allowed people to come in by the back door so they didn’t have to walk all the way around, especially the older folk. Ken used to deliver goods to their customers who were unable to get to the shop. They say they have been lucky in their time as shopkeepers with only a few serious incidents in the shop. What they will miss the most is the people and the friends they made, including those who came through the back door, such as sales reps and delivery people. They have enjoyed their time as shopkeepers but now it is time for someone else to take over. They plan on spending their retirement with their children and especially their grandchildren and having a well-earned rest. In closing they wish Maninder, Paul and Sati all the best and thank all their loyal customers and everyone who helped make their business such a success.

Ken found work at the Gisborne Rescue Fire Service at the Airport working there until redundancy. On May 13, 1988 he and Connie bought the Shiralee dairy in the Kaiti Mall and have owned and operated it for the past twenty-six and a half years. The selling of their dairy in November of this year marked the end of an era for them and a lot of their regular customers. The new owners have now taken over. Ken and Connie have met some lovely people through the shop and sadly have seen a lot depart this world as well. Over the years they have formed some long lasting friendships and before retiring were serving the grandchildren of their first generation of customers.

He roa tēnei, inā he tika tonu kia whakatā kōrua, nō reira Connie, nō reira Ken kua tō te rā ki runga. Me kii, e ai ki te whakatauki, ko kōrua te rākau, engari ko te hapori ngā paiaka. Nā reira tū mārō ana kōrua i te wharau a te tini, te wharau a te mano. I mōhio nuitia kōrua mō tō kōrua hūmārie, ngākau māhaki me te pono ki te tangata ahakoa ko wai ka whakauru atu ki tā kōrua toa. He maha ngā tamariki e maumahara ana ki tō kōrua pai ki a rātou. Kua pakekehia ināianei engari ko ā rātou tamariki te mitimiti aihikirīmi mai i te Shiralees. Ko wai ō Kaiti te kore mōhio ki a kōrua me ā kōrua tamariki? Connie, Ken me a kōrua tamariki, mokopuna tēnei rā te mihi atu nei ki a kōrua kua rītāea nei. Kia pai ō kōrua rā whakanui i te whānautanga o tō tātou Ariki me te tau hōu.

For almost three years they ran the "Good Manners" award for children from Kaiti and swear they had the most well-mannered children in Gisborne coming to their shop. The winning child would receive a free chocolate dip ice-cream at the end of the week. If Ken and Connie knew a child’s birth date they were sure to receive a free ice-cream.

Daniel and Irene

This great couple have many stories to tell about people they have met, including the unofficial mayor of Kaiti, Hemara Donnelly who, they say, spends more time mowing the concrete than the lawn. They tell of how Meng
